I am looking for the best Barcode ActiveX software for Visual Basic. I've looked at the WASP ActiveX and the TalTech ActiveX, I downloaded the demo and they both seem pretty similar. I'm new to barcoding, so does anyone have a suggestion based on their experience? My application has to run on VB 6.0 with an access 97 database to store the data. Thanks

We use taltech.  It works fine, easy to use.  Support is great.  But their software is incompatible with IEv5 or 5.5, can't remember which.  -that is if you are planning on using the barcode on a web page.
Otherwise it works great.

We use BarTender software to print bar codes to an Intermec AIAG tag printer through VB.  It works fine.

God luck,
